details about the women's sales fellowship
WILL REED is a member-only technology sales recruiting firm founded in 2015 that offers a redemptive edge to the recruiting industry. WILL REED works with the top 5% of sales talent as career-long coaches and advisors, offering a professional, personalized, and relational process to every candidate.
Located in Dallas, Texas, the Women’s Sales Fellowship is a 10-week summer internship that exists to introduce and ignite a revolution of women leaders within sales. Top-performing college women will be trained as full-time WILL REED recruiters as well as complete a tech sales bootcamp curriculum, built in partnership with sponsors and clients.
Statistically, women in tech sales are more successful than their male counterparts. Our internship was developed in order to expose more women to the opportunities within technology sales. Similar to the Women in STEM movement, WILL REED is passionate about equipping women to succeed in one of the fastest growing industries in the world.
